Description: Café Hanoi is a modern Vietnamese restaurant housed within a heritage warehouse space in Britomart, the city’s oldest commercial district. The restaurant reflects our passion and respect for Vietnamese food and culture. Our menu offers authentic Hanoian street food that has made the city world famous, and other more modern dishes that pair traditional Northern Vietnamese cooking techniques with the best of New Zealand produce. We are very careful to choose ingredients that have been sourced with a deep respect for the environment.

I had picked this restaurant to go to for our first night in auckland as it had good reviews & was close to our hotel. I knew it was in the britomart precinct - but it took a bit of effort to find as it has that very trendy enterance of an unassuming & almost unmarked door (with a tiny hard to read cafe hanoi).
But it was a great find as the place is just as cool inside with a lovely industrial feel fitout with an asian accent.
The place was almost full on a cold monday night but the friendly staff found us a table and explained how the menu worked. I couldn't fault the service.
We ordered the duck pancakes, the sticky pork ribs & garlic snake beans - we didn't really miss not odering rice - but it would have been perfect with the pork & beans.
Good quality & innovative asian food & the best ribs I have had - ever.
both our cocktails were also smartly made.

U just cannot fault this restaurant. The food selection is amazing with wicked starters and mains. U cannot go past the ribs, one of the curries as well as the hand rolls. The service is outstanding and withe great beers and wines makes it easy. It also has a great atmosphere.

The food is exquisite! Delicious menu, tantalizing tastes. Best to order a few dishes and share about. Came highly recommended and lived up to its reputation. Very expensive, but the food is delicious and unusual - so make a night of it. Very popular, so if you like crowds you will be surrounded by happy people, talking loudly. If you prefer a quieter evening - come later in the evening as they don't take reservations (annoying), so best to either come early (6pm) or after the 9. They do reservations for lunch.

Visited early in evening so wasn't very busy. Food was excellent. Was beginning to get busy when we left. Apparently you cannot book a table.
